Before he made his NHL debut, he was traded twice – initially to the Colorado Avalanche, then to the Phoenix Coyotes. He played his professional rookie season in 2004–05 with the Coyotes' American Hockey League (AHL) affiliate, the Utah Grizzlies, then debuted with Phoenix the following season. After three years, he was traded to the Florida Panthers, where he spent two seasons before being dealt to Vancouver at the 2010 NHL Entry Draft.

It's been quite a free-agent signings day so far with Daniel Alfredsson signing with the Wings!!! Keith Ballard signed with the Wild, Andrew Ference signed with his hometown Oilers, Peter Regin signed with the Isles, Ray Emery went back to the Flyers, Mike Komisarek signed with the Canes, Andre Benoit signed with the Avs, Mike Ribeiro signed with the Coyotes (they're now known as the Arizona Coyotes), Pierre-Marc Bouchard signed with the Isles, Nathan Horton signed with the Jackets, Ryan Clowe signed with the Devils, Clarke Macarthur signed with the Sens, and Rob Scuderi went back to the Pens. The Oilers traded Shawn Horcoff to the Stars for Philip Larsen and a seventh-round pick in the 2016 NHL Entry Draft. Please update me on these FA signings as the day goes on, especially if I missed something!!!
Just an FYI -- Per THN's Lyle Richardson, "According to the Toronto Star, this year's compliance buyout period begins 48 hours after the completion of the Stanley Cup final and ends on July 4, the day before the start of unrestricted free agency." In his latest publication, Lyle listed the following players as possible compliance buyout candidates (in no particular order)... ~ NYR, Brad Richards (C) ~ PIT, Marc-Andre Fleury (G) ~ LAK, Jonathan Bernier (G) ~ STL, Brian Elliott (G) ~ PHL, Daniel Briere (RW, C) ~ PHL, Ilya Bryzgalov (G) ~ MTL, Tomas Kaberle (D) ~ TOR, Mike Komisarek (D) ~ VAN, Keith Ballard (D) ~ NJD, Anton Volchenkov (D) ~ MIN, Dany Heatley (LW) ~ TB, Vincent Lecavalier (C) ~ NYI, Rick DiPietro (Fabergé Egg) Given they'd sign at a reasonable cost -- they would be, after all, receiving two separate paychecks -- do any of these players tickle your fancy? Personally, I'd enjoy seeing Heatley on Giroux's flank.
With a few of the contracts out there now.how long until Keith Ballard and Mike Komisarek are considered steals?
Is there any team that would trade for these players in the summer - David Booth, Keith Ballard, Mike Komisarek, Tim Connolly, Paul Martin?
